Our best quality Japanese tea has been cultivated and refined in Uji, Kyoto, for approximately 400 years and now we would like to offer it to the world.
Izumi Shimizu / Company President
I was born the second son into a tea farmer's family in Uji Tawara town, Kyoto, which has 200 years of history. I grew up watching and helping in the tea cultivation and production. In my thirties I started focusing on a mail-order business which we started in 1955, and then established the Kiyosen Co. Ltd. when we were officially accredited as tea appraisers in 1997.
Taking advantage of living in a tea farming town and practicing the strictest day to day quality control, we provide Ujicha, known as the best Japanese tea, to the world.
I hope you will enjoy our time-honored quality tea, also known as the golden potion for perpetual youth and longevity.
